Adios kankles & 13 pounds!

I have lost 13 pounds! (where’s the large font when you need it?)

I have what my husband calls “Blogger’s Feet”…feet that swollen and sore with a splattering of broken blood cells from pressure. I use to have a high arch to my foot but that too disappeared with my weight gain and when inactivity set in. Within two weeks time, my feet are no longer swollen, are only slightly sore and although broken blood cells can still be seen, so can my ankle bones!  I no longer have kankles! YIPPEE!


  • I have hit up the treadmill twice since last posting about dragging it out and dusting it off
  • I have given up bottled flavored sparking water when I noticed that Aspertame was in it, and am sticking with water, tea and a couple of cups of coffee daily (using So Delicious French Vanilla Coffee Cream).
  • I am finding ways to curb cravings and am beginning to feel a difference…not in pant size but with my joints.



New Year, Same Resolution!

So I completely dropped the ball and am now left saying “I’m sorry”.

Who am I apologizing to since this is a new blog with few followers? It’s simple, I am saying sorry to those people that have taken the time to “Like” Passion for Paleo on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest and while I am at it, I should also say sorry to the people closest to me…my children and husband.

Sorry I didn’t not chase you in the park, sorry that I had to stop halfway through a hike, sorry that I didn’t participate in XYZ activity, sorry it takes me forever to get ready now…I feel uncomfortable and awkward and my clothes don’t fit like they use to. The image I see in the mirror may be familiar but it is also upsetting to see. I have let myself go, I eat the wrong food, I watch too much TV and I have yet to plug in our treadmill (which it really dusty and needs a good cleaning).

I may have had the same New Year’s Resolution for five years running but this time it’s going to stick. 2013 will be my year to get healthy. It’s starting now and it’s starting with Passion for Paleo.

I always thought by having a blog, I had to write to impress (which is BS) because I am writing for me. My sentences will have grammar errors and thankfully because of the squiggly red line, zero spelling mistakes. Please take me as I am,  flaws as all and feel free to read my online journal about getting healthy, losing weight and doing it Paleo-style! Maybe you will be inspired to change your lifestyle, discover a new recipe or feel like you are not alone in wanting to be a better person.
